The Forest Heights Academy PTA held their first fundraiser for the New Year on Saturday, January 18, 2014. A Scavenger Hunt started out the day’s activities at 11:30am at Forest Heights Academy, where teams for the hunt were registered and given the rules.
Each team had to scour Marsh Harbour collecting photos of significant landmarks and various hard to find items, before meeting back at New Vision Ministries within the one hour time allotment, to have their scores tallied.
The winning team, including Jesse Sims, Scott Lightbourn, Allie Bethel and Janell Collins (driven by Nick Sims), received a gift certificate for a 21 piece bucket of chicken – kindly donated by KFC.
Hamburgers and Hot Dogs were sold and the action continued with games of BINGO.
Players excitedly marked their boards hoping to be the first to yell. Talia Davis won the final round of BINGO and the Grand Prize of the day – a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. It was a great day of enjoyment and fun was had by all who were there.
The PTA would like to thank everyone who supported the event and, of course, those who generously donated both time and money. All proceeds from the day were donated to the Philippines’ Relief Fund.
The PTA’s next event is a Parents & Teachers vs. Students Softball Game to be held on Saturday, March 29, where the PTA’s raffle will also be drawn after the game. The GRAND PRIZE for the raffle this year is a $3,000 Travel Certificate with A & W Travel, which can be used to purchase any travel arrangement desired, such as a 7 day Alaskan or Caribbean Cruise for two.
